- Community Engagement
CreateTO and the City of Toronto held a second community meeting for the Etobicoke Centre initiative on Thursday, February 20 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church Islington.
The meeting consisted of both an afternoon and evening session, which included an open house board display and a presentation with presenters from the City and Henning Larsen Architects. Staff from CreateTO and the City were on hand to answer questions and to speak to details of the project.
Approximately 300 members of the community attended the sessions to provide valuable feedback and to learn more about the Etobicoke Centre study and the Housing Now Initiative, which is informing the redevelopment of these lands.
The City of Toronto, in partnership with CreateTO, is studying the City-owned land at Bloor-Kipling and Bloor-Islington for a mixed-use community that will include affordable and market housing, community uses, parkland, retail and employment opportunities, all near transit. The study will produce a Block Context Plan and City-initiated Zoning By-law Amendments to guide the next evolution of Etobicoke Centre and advance the redevelopment of these City lands.
